The university has an affirmative consent policy that matches EROC’s definition. They forbid retaliation against complainants and describe what constitutes retaliation.
The Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity (OIED) initiates an investigation and the Office of Student Conduct makes a finding of responsibility and determines sanctions by majority vote. Possible sanctions are not listed. Each party may have an attorney present and able to actively participate in the investigative process. Both parties also may appeal, although the process is unclear. It is not clear whether sanctions go into effect immediately or hold off until the end of appeals. They provide an investigation timeline of 60 days, do not forbid mediation in cases of sexual assault, and do not specify whether investigators are trauma informed.
The school offers accommodations outside of the investigation process. Counseling services are offered. The university has a student health center and a women’s center that offers sexual assault services, although it does not specify which services. The student health center is not stated to have a sexual assault center and refers survivors to a local hospital for services. Medical services are not available on campus after hours. The university provides information on local rape crisis centers and does not specify whether campus police are trauma informed.
